The carbon steel mechanism is designed to strip peppercorns not crush them, crushing can supress the flavour. Stripping the peppercorn brings out natural oils in the peppercorn, releasing more flavour, aroma and is ideal for the best seasoning during and after cooking. All precision mills are adjustable to change the coarseness of the grind. This mechanism has machine cut, case hardened premium carbon steel.
The carbon steel has surface plating for anti-corrosion protection, more robust performance and increased longevity. The ultra-sharp mechanism design ensures increased grinding durability and the spring loaded design ensures even grinding consistency.
A metal stirrup bar is used rather than plastic giving additional strength, this mechanism will not corrode during usage so you can grind, flavour and season with confidence with its lifetime guarantee.
